Movie Info

CASSADAGA tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a séance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman's death - a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.(C) Archstone

Critic Reviews for Cassadaga

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Anthony DiBlasi's "Cassadaga" is the state of the art in horror movie storytelling, and the state of the art is horrendous.

Top Critic

This eager film piles on common fears: evil puppetry, haunted homes and overly generous hosts. So despite a sloppy and humorless execution, it is scary by association.

Top Critic

"Cassadaga" tries to scoop up enough tropes to satisfy a wide range of potential fright fans but lacks the cohesion to ever truly be effective.

Top Critic

This silly throwback to the post-'Psycho' shockers of the '60s offers a sluggish giallo-like murder mystery spiked with grotesque sadism.

Top Critic

Attempts to leverage the horror genre in the service of inducing epiphanies, but keeps tripping over its confused tangle of genres.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A hodge-podge of horror tropes that frequently congeals into something fun.

Audience Reviews for Cassadaga

Throwing enough slop against the wall and you're bound to come up with something and in this case you get a pile of crap.

A solid horror film, Cassadaga features some twists even thought it never quite develops into the great horror film it might have. It features some truly twisted and original scenes that you even the most jaded horror fan will remember.

More of a suspense/mystery than your classic horror/ghost movie, Cassadaga breaks away from the J-Horror influenced ghost stories from the likes of The Ring and The Grudge. Originally, I would have renamed this film to either "Little Mary", or "Strings", but after watching through the end credits for a pleasant surprise, Cassadaga is the perfect title as long as the (hopefully) trilogy takes place. The suspense is like taffy wrapping around the viewer's head, as it should be. The mystery gives relief when it gets overbearing. The acting is spot-on, along with the directing and dialogue. If this doesn't turn into a trilogy, or at least a sequel, it will fall short of being a terrific franchise with the potential it has.
